Collection Associates helps breast cancer fight

GREENSBURG – The employees of Collection Associates helped the community fight breast cancer this past week when they contributed more than $500 to the Hospital Foundation to help fund Decatur County Memorial Hospital’s Mammography Assistance Program.

The funds were raised through “jeans passes,” raffles, and more during October to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The group chose a local recipient in the hospital’s assistance program, which helps fund screenings for uninsured or under-insured patients that meet income qualifications. “Our employees have some of the most generous hearts I know” shared Phyllis Quiroz, HR Manager for the firm, “With a great majority of women in our office, the subject has a special significance.”

Michelle Roth, Operations Manager for CAI also related: “It’s a cause that has touched everyone in some way, be it a mother, sister, or friend — and our employees understand that impact.” The American Cancer Society recommends that women get yearly mammograms starting at age 40 and that they continue for as long as the woman is in good health. The ladies from CAI enjoyed a quick tour of the Hospitals newly-renovated mammography suite, which provides greater comfort and privacy for patients, as well as the new mammogram system purchased in early 2013. Carol Blasdel related the Hospital’s thanks: “We’re very thankful to the employees and everyone out at Collection Associates. This year we haven’t received as much funding for the assistance program as in years past, and it’s so wonderful to see the community respond like they do.” Director of the Hospital Foundation Bryan Robbins also concurred: “Collection Associates has long been a supporter of the Hospital Foundation, and this is simply another case of a local business and its employees giving locally to help meet a community need. It’s pretty special.”

Women interested in scheduling a mammogram can call Decatur County Memorial Hospital at (812) 663-1156.
